Product description

Review

From reviews of the first edition:

"The fascination of this book and subject lies in the complexities and studied ambiguities of Banton's taxonomy (of five racial theories)...I enjoyed this basic feature of the book. It taught me something about the uses of taxonomic ordering. It made me think about the subtle interactions of our ordering minds and nature's patterns. It provided an active metacommentary upon an important aspect of scientific history." Stephen Jay Gould, Nature

"The authority Banton brings to his subject is beyond dispute; he is admirably fair when examining the ideas of all protagonists, and he writes clearly, concisely, and engagingly. At once an insightful study in intellectual history and an exemplary analysis of sociological theory building." W.P. Nye, Choice

"Banton has written an excellent book. He traces the history of thinking on race and the evolution of the discipline of race or ethnic relations with considerable erudition and skill. His discussion of the different theories is invariably fair and perceptive, and clears up a good deal of muddle." Bhikhu Parekh, New Society --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Michael Banton's classic book reviews historical theories of race and the subsequent struggles to supersede them. It is essential reading for anyone wanting to unravel the confusions in contemporary debates about racial and ethnic conflict. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
